According to this source, Skybound will be keeping the team that developed the Telltale games intact so that they can complete the game how they originally planned. This is such great news for multiple reasons, Of course for the fans who want to see the end of Clementine story but this is great for Robert Kirkman as well. If you didn’t know, Robert Kirkman is the creator of the Walking Dead comic books so this move is important for him. Robert Kirkman responded to this news to Variety, “We can’t lose Andrew Lincoln and Clementine in the same year.”
We were all saddened to hear that Telltale is shutting down but this is somewhat good news for the series to at least see the light of day. What do you guys think about Skybound saving the final season of The Walking Dead?
